Chasing Sustainability - Asset Owners’ Paradox

 

The flagship Annual ESG Investing Conference of CFA Society Switzerland focuses this year on the opportunities and challenges of ESG investing from the asset owners' perspective. Under the motto “Chasing Sustainability - Asset Owners’ Paradox”, the Conference features a great line-up of keynote speeches, expert panels and workshops led by industry practitioners, academia experts, asset owners, industry associations and policy makers on burning key topics, such as the integration of ESG considerations in the asset allocation for pension funds, achieving the real impact from engagement and active stewardship, transparent and pragmatic ESG investment reporting, newest academic research on ESG metrics, ratings and investment performance, as well as the current regulation and self-regulation initiatives in ESG investing in Switzerland.

The Conference underscores the imperative role of asset owners in shaping a more sustainable future through responsible investment practices and is a must-attend event for asset owners and investment professionals seeking to navigate the evolving landscape of sustainable investing. Due to the overwhelming positive feedback to our past ESG Investing Conferences, this year our ESG Conference welcomes you both in Zurich and Geneva.
